Description of charity's activities and outcomes
The Foundation is the only dedicated fundraising bofy for the Townsville Hospital & Health Service. All income raised contributes to the activities of staff and patients through the funding of projects, ancillary equipment and services, training, and innovative research and educational opportunities for our medical professionals. These activities aim to improve daily practice and patient experiences within The Townsville Hospital. The Townsville Hospital Foundation has a proud army of 130 Volunteers that assist patients and families in 15 areas and wards throughout The Townsville Hospital Campus. Volunteers perform in accordance with a prescribed Code of Conduct and undertake performance reviews annually to ensure that services complement the requirements and performance standards of The Townsville Hospital.We are proud of the achievements and milestones we have attained against our Strategic Plan during the 16/17 financial year. In setting our plan we have deliberately aimed for excellence and to align ourselves with the vision of the Townsville Hospital & Health Services to ensure our goals dovetail into specific strategic directives and initiatives.Such initiatives include the dedicated fundraising for the redevelopment of our Children's Ward where the Foundation raised 1.2m. The Oncology Ward was another focus area this year with funding allocated for upgrades to patients refrigerators, a patient washing machine, personal earphones and a Tai Chi program to assist in healthy well-being. We continued to fund mobile broadband for our Palliative Care patients along with and additional 15 visitors chairs for the unit.We aim to make a difference to our local health district by contirbuting to its overall performance, providing equipment, running a full scale volunteer operation and fulfilling requests that will assist patient, visitor and staff experience in a positive way.
